Description Marco Burato 2022-01-04 23:19:39 UTC
When exporting a PDF for a document containing multiple typefaces of the same font, LibreOffice appears to always embed the Regular typeface.

For instance, if the document contains 3 lines using, respectively, the Regular, Semibold and Bold typefaces, the exported PDF contains the Regular typeface 3 times. Similarly, if 2 different typefaces are used, the PDF contains the Regular typeface 2 times.

Observed with the Open Sans font. It doesn't seem to happen with Liberation Sans. Reproduced on both Calc and Writer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Open Sans font, if not already available (https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Open+Sans)
2. Open the attached Test.odt file
3. Export to PDF

Actual Results:
All text lines in the PDF use the Regular typeface, which is embedded 3 times

Expected Results:
Each text line should render with the correct typeface, there should be 3 distinct typefaces embedded

Reproducible: Always

"Open Sans" is now a variable font family; the pdf export of variable font and SVG font is not yet supported in general (Adobe) and with LibreOffice in particular.

See bug #108497. This report will be closed as duplicate if you agree.
Comment 3 Marco Burato 2022-01-05 17:12:52 UTC
I uninstalled the variable fonts, installed the static ones and now it works as expected. So, yes, this appears to be a duplicate of the existing ticket.
